Candy striped beets and Saturday salad surprise

Sometimes your last minute lunch can surprise you, and today mine did! I've been cleaning all morning and wanted to just grab a quick bite. Sometimes that literally means a piece of turkey from the fridge. I don't get too worked up over fancy lunches most of the time. But then I thought, well, I need some veggies with this and oh! that avocado I this is what it turned into...a super yummy salad! Score!

Candy Striped Beet, Avocado & Turkey Salad

-1 small Candy Striped Beet, sliced in small strips
-3 slices organic/nitrate-free oven roasted turkey breast (I like Applegate Farms that you get at the deli counter)
-1/2 ripe avocado, sliced
-handful of green lettuce
-tbsp red wine vinegar
-tbsp good olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste.

So quick and easy to slice up all of the ingredients and put together topped with oil & vinegar. The richness of the avocado totally makes this dish. The candy striped beets are nice and crunchy and sweet with just a little bit of that beet bitterness. Yum! What a nice Saturday surprise :)
